Are we looking at the same ad? It's on the left, and it's available in California just only specific CA models.

I have a rule for Harbor Freight. If it is needs to be sharp, or has a motor/engine don't get it from Harbor Freight.

There are 5 item numbers. The last two are CA specific. All are $470.

Funny, but true. Let me add, if you need to use the tool more than once, get it elsewhere.

That's why I put B&M in the title.
Some stores may still have the "Chicago Electric" - electric start "blue" model. It's $30 more.

They all get pretty good reviews. The 90 day warranty is definitely not solid, but customer support seems to be pretty knowledgeable and helped a few owners trouble shoot and offered exchanges.

You can spend $650 and get the Generac at Lowe's for $650 with a 2 year warranty. It's $180 peace of mind. Keep in mind, return policy is still only 30 days, then you need to take your unit to a qualified repair shop. If there is no repair shop, you pay for shipping for repairs.

Things like hammers, ramps, anything that doesn't have to many moving parts they are great at and last a long time. I have no idea why it cost so much for a crow bar at Home Depot, when it is just a piece of steel. I love having a Harbor Freight, I just will only by certain things there.
